    A month from now the prospect of trips to Falls for mountain biking and walking will be something good to focus on, rather than applying for refunds.

    Think I'll wait until season end to submit my family's refund requests. That will be within 30 days of the easing of the current lockdown and even then we won't be allowed up to Falls or Hotham from Melbourne until some point in October or November. With the two earlier resort closures at...

    What I'm most disappointed with is missing having the holiday and travel and skiing experiences we wanted to have with our teens over the last two years. They will be busy in year 12 next year then be doing their own thing more post-high school. Though if Mum and Dad subsidise future ski trips...

    Yes, just heard that regional could be eased earlier so I hope that happens. I think the sledgehammer approach to lockdown the whole state when cases are almost all in the NW suburbs of Melbourne and in Shepparton, bar several isolated cases in Dandenong and Berwick, is a crude measure.

    Dan's announcement just now is that there will be no lifting of Vic Covid travel restrictions until September 23 and then to a 10km only limit. So I think that's it for the season at Falls, Hotham and Buller. I was going to get up for at least some ski touring at Falls with my family in the...

    Epic Pass Refunds

    My family of 2A2C used our passes for 5 days in the July school hols so we'll get maybe 10-15% back if the Vic lockdown goes for 30 days (very likely) or more plus two weeks of earlier closures at our nominated resort, Hotham. Does make those 5 days at Falls expensive ski pass days but at least...

    How did you go with the silly pack rule on the lifts @Chaeron ?

    No, we headed home on Sunday morning. I've been so busy with work today I haven't checked the Falls forum until this evening. Kids were back to school toda (Monday), me back to work, boo. Glad you got to drop a knee and best wishes for recovery after the chemo sessions.

    Yes there was a brief lull then. Given it was Saturday on the last weekend of school hols and Summit and The Maze are not close to opening, we (me plus 3) still got plenty of turns in today. Doing scratchy tele turns, the wait in the queues was valuable rest time.

    Towers lift at 11:38am. About a 10 minute wait in the queue. There is a bit of marshalling happening to get people into fours. People are staying relaxed and chill . Going into Blue Brumby for coffee and hot chocolates.

    Juggling pack and poles increases the chance of an issue when getting off the lift with others sharing the ride. We ditched our packs / water carriers for the rest of the trip ( yesterday and today) and are buying hot chips for bigger snacks. Big queues at Towers and Drivers, as you'd expect on...

    I slimmed my carrier down even more this afternoon and wore it under my softshell. Aside from making me look like a hunchback, it worked. The lifties stops hassling me. That won't work for @snowgum , his pack is somewhat larger and full of goodies.

    The signs say that packs must be removed, not just of the shoulder, and the lifties are enforcing it. Even the simplest Camelback will need to be removed so that the straps will be loose and more likely to get such in the horizontal slats on the lift chairs. Covering then all with nice pads...

    After getting my low profile tidy pack's waist belt partially torrn off this morning, at the top of the Scott lift, BECAUSE I was carrying it instead of wearing it (no loose straps when it's on my back) I got a bit annoyed and got the liftie to call his roaming supervisor, Alec. Alec and I had a...
